Welcome Welcome to this edition of the independent Essex and Southend-on-Sea Care Services Directory, which contains information for adults looking for care or support within the county, whether they are paying for it themselves or receiving support from the council. Staying as independent as possible is important to everybody. This Directory contains information about the care and support services available to enable you to do this when remaining at home, moving into a housing with care scheme, or within a care home or care home with nursing. Your first step to accessing services is to arrange an assessment with the Adult Social Care Department at Essex County Council or Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to establish your specific needs. This is free, irrespective of your income and available to all those who appear to need care and support. More details are provided on page 19. The assessment will determine whether you are eligible for financial support via a Personal Budget, which may allow you to buy in your own support and take control of your situation. Often called ‘personalisation’, this model of social care puts you at the centre of the process.

If you are unable to remain at home, you may want to consider a housing with care scheme (see page 51) or residential care. Comprehensive lists of care homes and care homes with nursing in Essex and Southendon-Sea start on page 69. In this Directory, you will also find important information about care decisions, including finding care in another county, making a comment or complaint about a service and how solicitors can help you.

Alternatively, your circumstances may mean you are classed as a ‘self-funder’, with the means to pay for your care. This is discussed on page 31 for those paying for care at home and 62 for those paying for residential care.

Support or care to remain living in your own home may be the option that best suits your circumstances. Ideas to make life easier at home are explored, starting on page 9 and a list of local home care providers begins on page 33.

Inspecting and regulating care services

professional or clinical staff; Experts by Experience; service users; and carers.

If you are considering using a care and support service, it is important to know that all care providers must be registered under a system which brings adult social care, independent healthcare and the NHS under a single set of essential standards of quality and safety.

Following an inspection, each care home and home care agency is given a report of how it rates against national essential standards of quality and safety. The CQC also rates services as: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) registers, inspects and reviews all adult social care and healthcare services in England in the public, private and voluntary sectors. This includes care homes, care homes with nursing, home care agencies and NHS services, amongst others. Inspectors carry out a mixture of announced and unannounced inspections looking at the quality and safety of the care provided. They look at whether the service is: Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive to people’s needs, and Well-led. Inspection teams are led by an experienced CQC manager and often include experts in their field. The team may also include

As Publisher of this Directory, Care Choices’ website www.carechoices. co.uk allows you to search by postcode or region for care homes, care homes with nursing and home care providers across the country that meet your requirements. Your search can then be saved and emailed to others. You can also view an electronic version of this Directory on the site and have it read to you by using the ‘Browsealoud’ function. Further help

When considering a care service, it’s always a good idea to check the CQC’s comprehensive website www.cqc.org.uk which has useful information regarding the quality of the service, as well as its inspection report. Alternatively, ask the care provider you are considering for a copy of its latest inspection report.

For any enquiries or to register a concern or a complaint, phone the CQC on 03000 616161 or email enquiries@cqc.org.uk The Care Quality Commission, Citygate, Gallowgate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4PA

South Essex Care and Health Association Choosing a care home or a care service for a relative or a friend is not an easy task. Quite often there is not enough time and trying to interpret someone else’s wishes is difficult. Equally getting to grips with the costs of care and sources of finance can appear to be a minefield. SECHA members are residential or nursing care home providers covering most of Essex and domiciliary care providers who are dedicated to providing the highest standards of care and value for money. The Association is active, involved and dedicated. It provides regular training and development programmes for staff and is a Disclosure and Barring Service registered umbrella body enabling DBS checks on all our members’ staff as required. We strive constantly to keep our members fully up-todate with latest care practices and changes in the law as it affects care homes. We have found that our members benefit enormously from the ‘Buddy’ system we operate which helps members with one-toone consultation and assistance as required with problems encountered. SECHA administers a bed register of our member homes. You can find this on our

website www.secha.org.uk/ The register is updated daily on the website and sent to local authorities, CCGs and other placement agencies once a week. Alternatively, contact our administrator who will forward a copy to you. Please note that all members are marked within the listings with SECHA.

Helping you to stay independent Services developed in partnership with the voluntary sector Adult Services works with and funds voluntary and community organisations to supply preventative care services. These are a vital form of support and help to maintain independence, social inclusion, and delay or avoid the need for more statutory interventions. Examples include: • day services, lunch clubs and social groups; • befriending, visiting and telephone contact services; • support schemes to help people being discharged from hospital; • support for carers; • respite care; • advocacy, information and advice; and • handyperson schemes.

must usually be paid for. You may be able to arrange transport to and from centres via Adult Services or Age UK Essex amongst others, see information on community transport on page 10. To find your local day care facilities visit www.ageuk.org.uk/essex/activities-events/clubs-and-groups

Meals on Wheels Meals on Wheels describes the delivery of ready meals to your home. There are services that provide delivery of frozen meals, or delivery of freshly-cooked hot meals. Frozen meals can be delivered in bulk and kept in your freezer until required, whereas hot meals should be eaten immediately. Councils may be able to arrange meals delivered to your door, though you would have to meet their eligibility criteria and it wouldn’t necessarily be free.

Day care centres Many people can feel lonely or isolated without an opportunity to fill their days with meaningful activities. Research has shown that one way to alleviate loneliness and promote wellbeing and independence is to provide regular social contact and a focus for activities. Day care centres give people the chance to change their routine, meet new people, take up an activity or receive specialist services such as chiropody or hairdressing. There is a wide variety around the county, catering for older people, people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and dementia. Centres can be as important for carers as those attending as they allow for a regular break from caring. Attendance may be free, although transport and meals

National and local organisations can also provide meals delivered to your door at a charge. To find out about Meals on Wheels in your area, contact Essex’s Adult Social Care Department on 0345 603 7630, or Southend-on-Sea’s Department for People on 01702 215008. A number of commercial companies can also provide this service. A meals on wheels listing is available at www.livingwellessex.org (search for ‘meals on wheels’). Being commercial companies, they may also deliver to Southendon-Sea.

Transport

Adapting your home

Community transport is a scheme to help you get around if you can’t use existing transport. It is arranged by your local council.

To remain in your own home for as long as you would like, you should ensure that it is safe, secure and warm. Some forward planning to ensure that the garden doesn’t become a burden is also sensible. If you are not planning to move, think about adaptations that would make life easier now and later on.

Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs) HIAs are local not-for-profit organisations funded and supported by local and central government. They pride themselves in working professionally and sensitively with older and disabled homeowners, providing advice, support and assistance to help them repair, improve, maintain or adapt their homes to meet their changing needs. Most HIAs provide three main services: • information and advice on repairs or adaptations you may be considering. This usually entails a visit to your home and is often free; • a handyperson service for small jobs and repairs; and • a home adaptations service for more major works. The HIA will work with you to specify the adaptations needed, and they will normally offer to get estimates from one or more of their regular contractors. Subject to your acceptance, the HIA will then offer to manage the works contract for you for an agreed fee. HIAs may also be helpful if you are not sure you can afford the home repairs or adaptations you need. They can advise on your eligibility for any grants and, if necessary, put you in touch with an independent financial adviser.

Where do I start? The way councils provide services to eligible adults and their carers is called personalisation. This term is used to describe a number of ways in which eligible adults can receive a mixture of local authority and government money in order to pay for the care services they need without direct council involvement. If you approach the council for support with your care needs, your needs and finances will be assessed (see page below for information on assessments). If you have a carer, they can be involved and even have their needs assessed too.

Your assessment If you appear to have care and support needs, you have a legal right to an assessment of those needs and your finances. Councils are statutorily obliged to assess you, regardless of whether you access their services. The assessment (which is free) will consider: • how you can best be supported to live as independently as possible; • your home and how you are coping in it; • your emotional wellbeing; • your diet; • any health and medical treatments you need; and • your financial status and any benefits you may be claiming.

is to determine what services you may be eligible for and who will pay for them. Information on paying for care can be found on page 31 if you are receiving home care and page 62 if you are moving into a care home.

Personal Budgets A Personal Budget is the amount of money that the council calculates it will cost to meet the support needs of eligible people. If you are eligible for a Personal Budget, the actual amount you receive will depend on your eligible needs and your finances. The money should be spent in line with a support plan that has been agreed by both you and the council and can be either a full or a partial contribution to such costs. You may also choose to pay for additional support on top of the budget. Any eventual contractual agreement for services is between you and your care provider, not the council. If you are eligible, a Personal Budget may be taken: • in the form of a direct (cash) payment, held directly by you or, where you lack capacity, by a ‘suitable person’; • by way of an account held and managed by the council in line with your wishes, or as an account placed with a third party (provider) and accessed by you in direct negotiation with the provider; or • as a mixture of the above.

To arrange an assessment, you will need to contact the Adult Social Care Department in Essex on 0345 603 7630 or Department for People in Southend-on-Sea on 01702 215008. Once the council has an understanding of your care and financial needs, the next stage

Personal Budgets cannot currently be used to pay for residential care. Managing a Personal Budget If you are eligible for a Personal Budget, there are organisations that can help you to manage this.

Assessments from hospital If you have been admitted to hospital and you might need care on discharge, you may be referred to the discharge team for an assessment, which will take place on the ward. The team may be made up of social workers, carers’ officers, mental health workers and housing officers. Whatever services you need on discharge, Adult Services will work with you, your family and carers to either restart services already in place prior to admission or to provide the appropriate services. Sometimes interim care packages are set up to facilitate your discharge and you will be reassessed by a community social worker within four to six weeks. Age UK Essex provides information and advice to support patients who have been discharged from hospital. For more information, call 01245 346106.

Reablement Reablement is an intensive short-term service that helps people regain skills and confidence, for example, after a fall or hospital stay. You will need to have an assessment of your care needs to decide if you are eligible. If you are eligible, a reablement worker will support you for a limited period. Reablement usually helps people to learn or re-learn daily living skills. It is not about doing things for you, it’s about giving you the skills and confidence to do things for yourself. It can also mean that you do not start to depend on support that could cost you money. For example, a reablement worker could help you regain your confidence following a fall, or provide support that

enables you to prepare a meal if there has been a change in circumstances that means you need to cook. Through reablement, they may also identify pieces of equipment that could support you to regain or maintain your independence for as long as you can.

a maximum of six weeks. If, after this, you have ongoing care or support needs, the council will conduct an assessment and may help you to arrange any services you might need. There may be a charge for these services.

If ongoing support needs are identified at any point of your reablement, the service may become chargeable.

NHS Continuing Healthcare

Intermediate care This aims to give recovery and rehabilitation support to help people regain their independence when they come out of hospital or, just as importantly, prevent them going unnecessarily into hospital. Intermediate care can be provided in your own home or in a care home, depending on local policy and your specific needs. It can be provided by care staff, occupational therapy and physiotherapy, with additional support provided by the local GP surgery, social workers and community nurses. This combined resource helps people to regain their independence and feel confident in their ability to manage for themselves with any necessary additional support. Intermediate care, including any care home fees where relevant, is provided by the NHS and is free. It is usually limited to

NHS Continuing Healthcare is a package of continuing care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS. This is free of charge, wherever it is delivered. NHS Continuing Healthcare support may be provided in a care home or care home with nursing or in a person’s own home. People eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare will have been assessed to have a ‘primary health need’ and are likely to have complex medical needs and substantial or intense ongoing care needs. See page 63 for more information.

Personal health budgets  A personal health budget is an amount of money to support a person’s identified health needs, planned and agreed between the person and their local NHS team. The aim is to enable people with long-term conditions and disabilities to have greater choice, flexibility and control over the healthcare and support they receive.

Services for carers Who is a carer? Carers regularly look after, help or support someone who wouldn’t be able to manage everyday life without their help. A carer doesn’t have to be living with the person they care for, and the help they give doesn’t have to be physical. The carer may be caring for a partner, another relative, a friend or a neighbour. For example, it may be someone who: • is an older person (over 60); • is living with dementia; • has a physical disability, learning disability or a mental health condition; • has sight, hearing or communication difficulties; • has a long-term health condition; or • misuses drugs or alcohol. Carers may be helping with: • personal care, such as washing and dressing; • going to the toilet, or dealing with incontinence; • eating or taking medicines; • getting about at home or outside; • practical help at home, keeping them company; or • emotional support or communicating.

Having a carer’s assessment Anyone who provides, or intends to provide, regular unpaid support to someone who could not manage without their help has the right to have their own needs assessed, even if the person they care for has refused support services or an assessment of their own needs.

22

A carer’s assessment is an opportunity for people to tell the council what they need as a carer, and to find out what support might be available. The assessment is an essential first step for carers to get the support they may need. It looks at: • the care the carer provides and how their caring responsibilities affect their life; • any support they are getting now and what else would help; and • what they would like their support to achieve. The assessment can also give lots of information about other services that might help, and other ideas for support. The carer’s assessment will show if the carer qualifies for support from Adult Services.

Carers’ Personal Budgets The carer’s Personal Budget is a single payment that can be used towards the cost of something specific that will support carers in their caring role. For example, it could be used for leisure activities, education or training, or just to take a short break from caring. When Adult Services considers a carer’s Personal Budget, they give priority to situations where there is a significant risk of the carer not being able to continue to provide care if they do not get some support. The amount a carer could get depends on their needs identified by their carer’s assessment. The money is not taxed and it will not affect any benefits.

Respite at home Home-based respite services give carers a break from their caring responsibilities. A care worker can come in to look after the person they care for, so the carer can have some time to themselves. The breaks could be regular or just when needed.

This Directory’s helpline 0800 389 2077 – assistance with finding care and support


Respite at home is considered to be a service for the person who is being cared for. If they have a Personal Budget (see page 19) for their own needs, they could use that money to pay for it. A financial assessment of the person being cared for will confirm whether they need to pay towards the cost of this service.

Benefits Carers may want to explore whether they are entitled to Carer’s Allowance – currently £62.10 per week but this may change over the life of this Directory. Carers may also qualify for Carer’s Premium or Carer’s Credit depending on their eligibility. The Government website, www.gov.uk has more information on benefits, including carers’ benefits. Alternatively, contact a local carers’ organisation which may be able to help undertake a benefit check.

Care in your own home Carefully chosen home care, with a good quality provider, is an excellent way to retain your freedom and independence, whilst getting the help you need to stay happy and safe. It can offer the opportunity to stay at home, in your own familiar surroundings, and to retain a quality of life you might have feared lost.

Why choose home care? Reasons for choosing home care can vary. Sometimes after a stay in hospital, someone might find they need some help whilst they recuperate. Others can find that a long-term condition, a disability or general frailty means they need some help and support at home. After a stay in hospital, someone may carry out an assessment of your situation to see if home care will benefit you. You and your family will be fully involved in looking at what will suit you best. Alternatively, you or those close to you might notice changes in your ability to manage the day-to-day things you normally cope with easily, like preparing meals or looking after yourself. If this happens, contacting Adult Services is a good first step towards finding help. How home care can help you The level of home care provided can be tailored to meet your needs – from a visit once a day to a much greater amount of support. Even those with quite significant and debilitating medical conditions can get skilled personal care that can enable them to stay in their own home. Some agencies will provide live-in care, where a care worker will live with you in your home and support you. A list of home care agencies starts on page 33.

Finding the right support As Publisher of this Directory, Care Choices’ website www.carechoices.co.uk allows you to search by postcode or region for care homes, care homes with nursing and home care providers that meet your requirements across the country. Your search can then be saved and emailed to others. Alternatively, this Directory’s free helpline provides an independent information and help service encompassing care services and accommodation. A personalised report can be generated for callers providing details of all care homes that meet their criteria. One call to the freephone number 0800 389 2077 will enable the service to build a profile of exactly what type of care you’re looking for, while taking into account your personal needs and interests. The Care Quality Commission (www.cqc.org.uk ) is responsible for checking that any care provided meets essential standards of quality and safety. Further information is on page 6. The United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) requires its members to comply with a code of practice. This code includes a commitment to treat customers with dignity and respect and operate at a level above the legal minimum required in legislation. Social care regulations do not apply to cleaners, handymen or gardeners. However, some home care agencies are increasingly providing staff who can help meet these needs too. The benefits of using a regulated agency include: • assessing your care needs and tailoring a plan to meet those needs;

• advertising, interviewing and screening suitability of workers; • arranging necessary insurance cover; • providing training and development for care workers; • managing workers’ pay, including compliance with the National Minimum Wage;

• managing employment relationships, including sickness, absence and disciplinary matters; and • managing health and safety issues. For further information and help call this Directory’s independent helpline on 0800 389 2077. You can also use the checklist on page 29.

Living with dementia at home If you are concerned about persistent forgetfulness or memory difficulties, it is important to consult a GP. They can undertake an initial examination and refer you to a memory clinic for further investigation if necessary. The various types of support available to you and your carer are likely to involve NHS services, Adult Services and voluntary agencies. Some examples of services and support to help people living with dementia include:

Focus on what the person can do, not what they cannot do, help with little errands or with cooking, listen to the person with dementia, and find out more about the condition. When someone is living with dementia, they need:

• specialist day centres;

• support to live their life;

• respite care or short breaks;

• reassurance that they are still valued, and that their feelings matter;

• assistive technology and community alarms; • home care; • meals at home; • community equipment; • extra care or sheltered housing; and

The more support you can give someone, the better life with dementia can be, especially in the early years.

• freedom from as much external stress as possible; and • appropriate activities and stimulation to help them to remain alert and motivated for as long as possible.

• carers’ support groups.

Dementia Friends

Care at home It can often be best for a person living with dementia to stay in their own home for as long as possible. This may mean that they require some support services at home. The person living with dementia will respond best to the same care staff who know them well. Continuity of care can be provided by either care agencies or care workers employed directly by the person or his or her family.

Paying for care in your own home Councils provide upfront information on how much people can expect to pay for home care and how charges are worked out. This information must be made available when a needs assessment is carried out. Written confirmation of how the charge has been calculated must be provided after a financial assessment. If you have more than ÂŁ23,250 in savings or capital you will have to pay the full cost of your care. The value of your home is not counted when working out charges for non-residential care. If you have more than ÂŁ23,250 you should tell Adult Services when your savings are likely to fall below this amount. The council calculates charges in accordance with national eligibility criteria set by the Government. This ensures people are only required to pay what they can afford, taking into account capital, income and expenditure. Your assessment looks at how much money you have coming in, gives an allowance (set by the Government) for everyday living expenses and makes allowance for disability-related expenditure. This is the extra amount you spend as a result of your disability or illness. Adult Services can help you to identify these costs. They will also carry out a full benefit check and, if you want them to, assist you with claiming your full entitlement. Figures mentioned here may change over the lifetime of this Directory.

If you are in need of care or support you may be eligible to claim Attendance Allowance (AA), or Personal Independence Payments (PIP). AA and PIP are non-means tested benefits. Provided you are eligible, you can receive AA or PIP regardless of how much income or capital you have. AA is payable to people over the age of 65 and PIP to those aged 16 to 64. There are different rates that can be awarded, dependent on the level and type of help you need. These can be found at www.gov.uk Other ways to fund your care and support It is important to seek independent financial advice if you are paying for your own care and support. There are independent financial advisers that focus specifically on care funding advice, often referred to as specialist care fees advisers. They are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and must stick to a code of conduct and ethics and take shared responsibility for the suitability of any product they recommend. The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) Aims to assist consumers and their families in finding trusted, accredited financial advisers who understand financial needs in later life.

Muriel’s Story

Muriel had always been independent and loved to go to the shops every day. Her daughter knew she was a little forgetful, but became concerned when a neighbour told her that Muriel had been brought home several times by strangers because she seemed to have lost her way. A live-in carer from Purely Care has allowed Muriel to retain her independence and remain safe. Muriel can still decide where she goes and when, the carer helps her choose an appropriate outfit and makes sure she gets to her appointments on time and finds her way back home safely. Muriel loves having someone to chat to and remind her when to put the TV on to watch her favourite black and white films. When her daughter visits she can now spend quality time with her Mum rather than having to deal with problems.

If one of our carers could help you, please call us. info@purelycare.co.uk • www.purelycare.co.uk

Housing with care Housing with care combines independent living in a home with security of tenure, along with care services arranged according to need. Schemes may be run by housing associations, the local authority, voluntary organisations or private companies. Properties may be available for rent, mixed tenure or to purchase.

Supported Living Supported Living is a term generally used to describe situations in which people (often adults with a learning disability or mental health condition) rent their home, and their personal care or support is arranged separately. This means they can change their support without having to move, or move and take the same support with them. People have greater security of tenure, and can claim a wider range of welfare benefits than in a residential care home. Supported Living can be delivered in a range of settings, including individual flats or houses, clusters of self-contained flats on the same site, shared accommodation, and extra care housing. The individual, a private landlord, a housing association, a local authority or a charity may own the property.

Shared Lives Shared Lives is a care service for adults with learning or physical disabilities and for older people. It is family-based care provided by individuals and families. Shared Lives carers are local people recruited and trained to make sure they have the right qualities to provide care and support. For Shared Lives in Essex, contact Guideposts on 01993 893560. For Southend-on-Sea, contact the Department for People on 01702 215008.

Sheltered housing  Sheltered (or retirement) housing is provided by local authority housing departments and housing associations for older people who would like to remain independent but prefer the added security and reassurance of a scheme manager and an alarm call service. A scheme manager is either based at the site or visits regularly. Many sheltered housing schemes also have communal lounges, laundry facilities, lifts, door entry systems and specially adapted facilities.

Extra care housing

Supported Living refers to the way in which accommodation and support are organised, rather than the amount of support. This will be tailored to individual needs and can include access to support 24-hours a day if assessed as necessary, although many people do not require this, particularly with the use of assistive technology (discussed further on page 17).

Extra care housing is similar to sheltered schemes, with self-contained accommodation together with some communal facilities. In an extra care scheme, instead of low-level support traditionally provided by wardens in sheltered schemes, higher levels of care and support are provided on-site by a designated team of care workers, who can be available 24-hours a day.

For further information, speak to Adult Services on 0345 603 7630 (Essex), 01702 215008 (Southend-on-Sea) or contact your local team for further information.

Extra care allows you to retain your own tenancy and have care services delivered, ensuring that you are able to remain safely in your own self-contained accommodation.

Specialist services Learning disability The Government has indicated that services for people with disabilities should promote the following key principles: • respect people’s rights; • actively promote people’s independence; • ensure that people have and are able to make choices in all areas of their lives; and • create opportunities for people to be included rather than separated from society. If you are assessed as needing support, the local authority can help you find the right support to meet your needs. Services can include help in the home (explained on page 25), adaptations and equipment (see page 16) and holidays. For people looking to move out of their family home, there are a number of options that could be explored before considering residential care. You may want to have your own home with support arranged as necessary or you may want to look into a supported living scheme, explained on page 51. These options can give greater independence and choice. A good quality care home can also help to promote independence and can be a step towards more independent living for some people who may initially require more support. Community Learning Disability Teams Community Learning Disability Teams (CLDTs), work with adults aged 18 and over who have a learning disability and are not able to manage without the right kind of support. The teams are trained in many disciplines, including speech and language therapy, sensory services, behaviour therapy

52

and physiotherapy. The services can be accessed by both inpatients and outpatients. Contact Adult Services for more information. Guideposts Listens to and supports adults with learning difficulties to access community activities and lead fuller, more independent lives. Tel: 01993 893560 Email: info@guideposts.org.uk Web: www.guideposts.org.uk Scope Offers free, impartial and expert information, advice and support to disabled people and their families, 9.00am to 5.00pm weekdays. Freephone: 0808 800 3333 Web: www.scope.org.uk

Mental health Your local Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) should be your first point of contact if you have a mental health condition. CMHTs are community-based assessment and treatment services for people with mental health conditions aged between 18 and 65 years. You can ask your GP to refer you or ask someone who knows you to contact the CMHT on your behalf. There is increased demand for home care for people with mental health conditions arising from greater use of supported living instead of care home placements. Like other specialist care services, this can be paid for (if you have been assessed as eligible) with a Personal Budget, discussed on page 19. In Essex, the North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (NEPFT) and the South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT) provide mental health services.

Planning for end of life Although the subject of dying is often painful to contemplate, planning for the end of life can be a good way to share your wishes and help your family to know what you would like. Good planning for all your needs should mean that you can convey your wishes, including where you would like to die if you choose. You may wish to remain in your own home or care home in your last days and not be admitted to hospital. When choosing a service you should consider its end of life care philosophy and policies. Enabling people to die in comfort and with dignity is a core part of providing care. The way care professionals approach the process will be incredibly important for you, your family and carers.

of individuals and carers. It is worth asking care providers whether they are working towards The Gold Standards Framework. This can be used in various settings, for example hospitals, primary care and care homes, to improve the co-ordination and communication between different organisations involved in providing care for someone near the end of their life. Planning for your funeral While you are thinking about the future, you may want to consider writing down your wishes for your funeral. This can help to alleviate pressures on your family. They may appreciate knowing your wishes and that they can make sure they are considered at your funeral. By detailing your wishes, your family can be comforted by the fact that they don’t need to make all the decisions

about what you would have liked or wonder whether they are making the right choices. Things to consider are included in ‘My Funeral Wishes’, a form produced by Dying Matters and the National Association of Funeral Directors. Visit www.dyingmatters. org/page/my-funeral-wishes You do not have to instruct a funeral director, but if you do, ensure that the director you choose is a member of either the National Association of Funeral Directors or The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors. These associations have strict guidelines that members must adhere to. See page 111 for contact details. See page 107 for details of organisations that may be able to help you plan for the end of your life or your funeral.

Care homes All care providers in the country must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). All services are inspected by the CQC, which reports on its findings and rates each home. These inspection reports and ratings are available at the home or from the CQC (www.cqc.org.uk ). Before you decide whether to move into residential care, you should contact the council for a needs assessment (see page 19).

Types of care home Care homes (personal care only) If you need someone to look after you 24-hours a day, but don’t need nursing care, a care home offering only personal care may be the best option. Personal care includes bathing, feeding, dressing and help with moving but it must be paid for if your capital/savings exceed £23,250. This figure may change during the lifetime of this Directory. See page 62 for more information on paying for residential care. Care homes with nursing A care home with nursing provides the same care and support as a care home offering personal care, but with 24-hour nursing staff on hand. If you think you may need nursing care in a home, you will need to be visited by a social worker or a care manager to work out what care you will need. This visit might be in your own home, or in hospital if

you’ve been ill, or in a home. You will be fully involved in planning your care needs. If, after a needs assessment, a care home providing nursing care is the best solution for you, a social worker will give you information to help you find a home which meets your care requirements. The cost of the nursing care part of your fees is paid by the NHS to the home directly; the current amount is £156.25 per week. This figure may change after April 2017, check with Adult Services after this date. For further information on care homes and care homes with nursing, and how to find one to meet your needs, call this Directory’s independent helpline on 0800 389 2077.

Activities in care homes The word ‘activity’ can imply many different things but, in the context of a care home, it should mean everything a resident does from when they open their eyes in the morning until they go to sleep at night. Activities should stimulate residents emotionally, physically and mentally and, in a good care home, should encompass all aspects of daily life. They can range from choosing what to wear, to helping with tasks around the home or garden, to listening to the radio or joining in with an art or exercise class. Above all, activities provide a point of interest, fun and challenge to each day. They should enable people to

participate in daily life, be engaged and maintain hobbies or activities they have enjoyed throughout their life, as well as offering the opportunity to try something new, if they wish.

Increasingly, they are fully integrated into the staff team, play a key part in developing care plans and ensure that all staff appreciate the part they play in delivering high-quality activity provision.

Lots of care homes now employ a dedicated activity co-ordinator. What they do and how they do it varies from one home to another.

Ensure you speak to any potential providers about the activities they provide in their care home.

Dementia in care homes A good care home will follow the concept of a person-centred approach to care for people with dementia. This means that the unique qualities and interests of each individual will be identified, understood and accounted for in any care planning. The person with dementia will have an assessment and an ongoing personalised care plan, agreed across health and social care. This should identify a named care co-ordinator and addresses their individual needs. They must also have the opportunity to discuss and make decisions, together with their carers, about the use of advance statements, advance decisions to refuse treatment, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Preferred Priorities for Care. For more information on these, see pages 56 and 65. It is important that care and support options are tailored to the needs of the individual. Make sure staff know the person living with dementia by providing life story books, telling staff about their likes and dislikes and providing belongings that bring comfort and have meaning for them. Within the home, much is down to the attitude and skills of the manager and the staff. Do they provide an environment that

60

enables a person with dementia to exercise choice and personal preferences even in the later stages of the condition? Who is the person in charge of championing dementia care best practice in the home? Further questions to consider are included in the checklist opposite.

Design and technology The design of a care home specialising in dementia needs to be based on small group living, preferably with accommodation on one level and with opportunities to go in and out of the building within a safe environment. Plenty of natural light and an easy way of finding one’s way around the building and grounds are essential for minimising disorientation.

Staff training

 Dementia-specific training is essential to ensure that care home staff have an understanding of how best to support and care for people with dementia. Ask to speak with the Dementia Champion and question the placement if the home does not have a specific Dementia Lead.

Paying for care When a local authority provides or arranges services for you, you may be asked to contribute towards the cost of care at home or in a care home, depending on your personal circumstances.

Financial assessment To determine whether or not you will need to contribute towards the cost of your support, the council will conduct a financial assessment. This will look at your capital, savings and income. Most people are likely to have to contribute something towards the cost of their care. The value of your home is included as part of your capital in this assessment if you are moving into residential care, except in limited circumstances. It is not included if you are receiving care in your own home. If you choose not to have a financial assessment, you will be responsible for paying the full cost of your care and support. If you have capital and savings of less than £14,250, you may be asked to contribute part of your income and the local authority may meet the shortfall. If you have capital and savings between £14,250 and £23,250, you are likely to have to contribute towards the cost of your care. You may need to contribute part of your income, and a sliding scale operates whereby you contribute £1 for each £250 you have in capital and savings above the lower figure. If your capital and savings amount to more than £23,250, you will likely have to pay the full cost of your care yourself. However, you are still entitled to an assessment of your needs by the council and you may be able to get some support with funding your care, see page 63.

of this Directory. Speak to Adult Services for more information about paying for care and your specific situation. If you are eligible for support from the council and you are moving into a care home or care home with nursing, you will be given a choice of homes that charge the amount the council would usually pay for someone with your needs. If the home you choose charges a fee in excess of the local authority’s funding limit, you will need to find someone else to meet the additional amount. This is often referred to as a ‘third party payment’ or ‘top-up’ (explained further on page 64).

Running out of money If your capital and savings are likely to reduce to £23,250 through payment of care home fees, you must let the council know well in advance. It must undertake an assessment of your circumstances before deciding if it will make a contribution. If you become eligible for the council’s support with funding your care, and the home you are living in charges more than the council’s fee levels, you are likely to need to find someone to help pay the difference. See page 64 for more information. If funds for this top-up are not available, you may need to find accommodation which can meet your needs at the local authority fee level.

Understanding your rights before moving into care is essential. There are a number of financial products and specialist companies that may be able to help. It is important to seek independent financial and legal advice before committing yourself to anything. These figures may change during the lifetime See page 64 for more information.

Continuing Healthcare, you can receive the services in any setting, including your own home or in a care home. The NHS will pay if you need healthcare from a community nurse or a therapist as well as personal care to help you at home.

Self-funding your care

Non-means-tested support Some support may be available to you without a financial assessment. Benefits  Attendance Allowance, Disability Living Allowance and Personal Independence Payments are non-means-tested, nontaxable benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions. There are different rates depending on the level of your needs. Everyone who needs care should consider claiming these benefits, however, they may not be paid if you are, or become, a permanent resident in a care home. If you are entitled to the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment, this payment will not stop once you are in a care home and is not included in your financial assessment. You may also want to consider applying for Universal Credit (if you are under pension age) or Pension Credit (if you are over pension age). NHS Continuing Healthcare NHS Continuing Healthcare is fully-funded care and support, provided and paid for by the NHS. To be eligible, your needs must be primarily health-related and are likely to be severe. If you are eligible for NHS

Paying for care can be an expensive and long-term commitment, so it is strongly recommended that you seek specialist information and advice before entering into any arrangements. It is important that you seek specialist advice from appropriately qualified and regulated financial advisers, see page 65 for suggested contacts. Twelve-week property disregard If your former home is included in your financial assessment but your other capital and savings are less than ÂŁ23,250, and your income is not enough to meet your care home fees, the council may share the cost of the first twelve weeks of permanent care, provided it agrees that the level of care is needed. Deferred Payment Agreements After the twelve-week property disregard period, you may be offered a Deferred Payment Agreement. Deferred Payment Agreements allow people to delay selling their former home during their lifetime. Any fees paid by the council will be charged against the value of the home, and must be repaid once the house is sold or from the estate. Interest is payable throughout the period of the loan and there is also a one-off fee to join the scheme, which covers all legal and administrative costs for the lifetime of the loan. The council may limit the amount of the loan, depending on the equity in the property.

For more information on these options, speak to the council. NHS Nursing Care Contribution Whether you are a temporary or permanent resident, if you live in a care home that provides nursing care, you may be entitled to a non-means-tested Registered Nursing Care Contribution (sometimes referred to as Funded Nursing Care) towards the cost of your nursing care. This is paid directly to the home.

Third party payments If you are eligible for the council’s support, you will be offered a choice of homes that accept the local authority’s funding rates. If you choose to live in a more expensive home and someone is able to make an additional payment for you, they will have to pay the local authority the difference between its rate and the home’s fee. This additional payment is called a ‘top-up’ or ‘third party payment’. You are not allowed to make this additional payment yourself, except in limited circumstances, so the responsibility usually falls to a family member, friend or charity. Before anyone agrees to pay a top-up, they should be aware that the amount may increase, usually once a year, and they need to be confident that they can sustain the payments for as long as they are required. They will need to sign a contract with the council to confirm that they are able to do this. If the additional payments stop being paid for any reason, then you should seek help and advice from the council. You may have to move to a cheaper home that accepts the local authority’s funding rate.

64

If you are already resident in a care home, and no top-up was required at the time you became a resident, the home may seek to introduce one at a later date, which would need to be agreed first with the local authority. This may happen if a change to your arrangements is made at your request or with your agreement, for example you move to a nicer room. It is important to note that councils have a duty to offer you a place at a home that accepts their funding rates. If no such place is available, a top-up should not be charged.

Seeking financial advice Planning for your future care and support needs can be complicated and funding care can be expensive. Professional advice may be helpful in enabling you (and your family) to identify the most suitable and cost-effective solution. Everyone is encouraged to seek unbiased, expert advice from independent financial advisers to help work out how to pay for long-term care. Independent financial advisers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and must take shared responsibility for the suitability of any product they recommend. Unlike advisers who are tied to particular providers, specialist care-fees advisers can offer advice on products from across the whole market.

How solicitors can help  A solicitor can give you impartial advice about wills, making gifts, estate planning and Powers of Attorney. Some can also offer guidance on immediate and long-term care plans, ensuring (if applicable) the NHS has made the correct contribution to your fees. Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) allow you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions about your personal welfare, including healthcare and consent to medical treatment, and/or your property and financial affairs. A LPA is only valid once registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. It allows for a person of your choice to make decisions on your behalf at a time when you may be unable to.

The Court of Protection can issue Orders directing the management of a person’s property and financial affairs if they are incapable of managing their own affairs should they not have a LPA. The Court procedure is presently very slow and the fees are quite expensive so preparing a LPA is always advisable, providing you have somebody sufficiently trustworthy to appoint as your attorney.

The Silver Line 

An ‘advance directive’ allows you to communicate your wishes in respect of future medical treatment but it is not legally binding. You may instead wish to make a living will, properly known as an ‘advance decision’, setting out treatment that you do not want to receive in specified circumstances, which would legally have to be followed even if you die as a result.

Specially trained helpline staff:

The Silver Line is the only free confidential helpline providing information, friendship and advice to older people, open 24-hours a day, every day of the year. Launched by Dame Esther Rantzen, The Silver Line aims to combat loneliness in the over-65s through calls to trained volunteers.

• offer information, friendship and advice; • link callers to local groups and services; • offer regular befriending calls; and • protect and support those who are suffering abuse and neglect. Tel: 0800 470 8090 Web: www.thesilverline.org.uk

Comments, compliments and complaints Any proposed Gift out of your estate needs careful consideration of the benefits, risks and implications, particularly on any future liability for care costs or tax liability. If you don’t have your own solicitor, ask family or friends for their recommendations. Contact several firms, explain your situation and ask for an estimate of cost and an idea of timescales involved. Many firms will make home visits if necessary and will adapt their communications to meet your needs. It’s important to find a solicitor who specialises in this area of the law. The Citizen’s Advice Bureau offers an advice service and will be able to recommend solicitors in your area.

You should feel able to complain about any aspect of your support which affects your happiness or comfort. This might be anything from the way you are treated by staff to the quality of the food you are served. You should also feel free to make comments and suggestions about possible improvements to your surroundings and the services provided. Making a complaint should not be made difficult for you and should not affect the standard of care that you receive. Care services are required under national essential standards of quality and safety to have a simple and easy to use complaints procedure.

This Directory’s helpline 0800 389 2077 – assistance with finding care and support


If you are concerned about the care that you, a friend or a relative are receiving, it makes sense to speak to the manager of the service about your concerns before you take any further action. The problem may be resolved quite easily once they are made aware of it. However, if you need to make a formal complaint, you should initially contact the registered owners of the service. They have a duty to respond to any complaints made. If your complaint is about a breach of regulations, contact your local office of the Care Quality Commission (see page 6 for more information about the CQC). If your local authority has arranged and funded a place for you in a care home or has contributed to a home care service, another option is to complain to your social worker/care manager or the department’s designated complaints manager. If you have been unable to resolve your complaint you can contact the Local Government Ombudsman on 0300 061 0614 and ask them to assist you. The Local Government Ombudsman looks at complaints about councils and some other authorities and organisations, including adult social care providers (such as care homes and home care providers). It is a free service. Its job is to investigate complaints in a fair and independent way.

Out-of-county care You can choose a care home outside your home county. You may want to be closer to friends, family members or you may want to relocate to another part of the country. If your care home place is state-funded, speak to the local authority about who is responsible for your care fees, especially if you choose a care home in another region. Any home you

choose must be suitable for your assessed needs and comply with the paying authority’s terms and conditions. You must seek further advice before making your decision. For information on care provision in Essex, Southend-on-Sea and other regions, contact this Directory's helpline on freephone 0800 389 2077 with details of your requirements. Protecting vulnerable adults Vulnerable adults may experience abuse, neglect and worse. A vulnerable adult is a person aged 18 years or over who may be unable to take care of themselves or protect themselves from harm or from being exploited. What is adult abuse? Abuse is mistreatment that violates a person’s human and civil rights. The abuse can vary from treating someone with disrespect in a way which significantly affects the person’s quality of life, to causing actual physical suffering. It can happen anywhere – at home, in a care home or a care home with nursing, a hospital, in the workplace, at a day centre or educational establishment, in supported housing or in the street. Forms of abuse could be physical, sexual, psychological, emotional or financial. It could also cover the issues of modern slavery, selfneglect and institutional abuse – where the abuse affects more than one person within an organisation and is not addressed by the service’s management. Who might be causing the abuse? The person who is responsible for the abuse may be known to the person abused and could be: • a paid carer or volunteer; • a health worker, social care or other worker;

• a relative, friend or neighbour; • another resident or service user; • an occasional visitor or someone who is providing a service; or • someone who deliberately exploits vulnerable people. If you think someone is being abused call Adult Services. Your concerns will be taken seriously and will receive prompt attention, advice and support. If the abuse is also a crime such as assault, racial harassment, rape or theft you should involve the police to prevent someone else from being abused. If the police are involved Adult Services will work with them and with you to support you. If you are worried about contacting the police you can contact Adult Services to talk things over first. If immediate action is needed dial 999. You can also: • contact the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on 03000 616161 if the vulnerable adult is living in a registered care home, care home with nursing or receiving home care services; or • let a public service professional, such as a social worker, community nurse, GP,
